open an embassy in Armenia, the Armenian president Serge Sargsian said
at the meeting with the newly-appointed Lithuanian ambassador to
Armenia Giedrius Apuokas that Armenia also intends to open an embassy
in Lithuania.

Armenian-Lithuanian relations as friendly. Pointing out the high level
of the political dialog between the two countries, he underlined the
necessity to promote economic cooperation which is still at a low
level, even though it has much potential, with the legal field being
established.

Eurointegration may be of great use to Armenia.
